Tickets for the Ruapehu Writers Festival are on sale through Eventfinda now!
After months of work, we’ve assembled an amazing programme, which includes more than 30 New Zealand writers, from the eminent to the up-and-coming. The festival, which will be held in Ōhakune from 17–20 March 2016, promises to be a fun and stimulating long weekend of readings, talks, panel discussions, a workshop, a poetry slam and some more unusual events such as a literary waterfall walk, a bike ride and a pony trek.
We’ve tried to keep ticket prices low so it’s accessible to more people, with individual tickets at $14 ($10 concession), and hope that most people will buy a season pass to really enter into the spirit of the festival. Earlybird season passes, which are on sale until 6 February 2016, are only $90 ($60 concession). What a fabulous Christmas present for your literature-loving friends or family – or for yourself!
